Kids Day

Today Mexico celebrates Kids Day. My kids have been so excited about it. Yesterday Josiah said " I can't wait for tomorrow but at the same time I don't want tomorrow to come" I asked him why. His answer was "well because if it was already tomorrow then the next day would be Labor day and I don't really feel like working!". Tomorrow is Labor day and I will make sure he doesn't work too hard.
At school today they are pretty much having a party all day long. The kids got to wear costumes to school. There will be pinata, food, candy, presents etc. at the girls school. Hannah decided she didn't want to put her princess dress on at the last minute so we improvised and she wore one of Abigais costumes. Its from a famous Mexican show.
Abigail was so so so happy to wear her princess dress. I am sure she is having a blast showing it off to everyone at school.

Josiahs school is actually putting on a carnival. They have rides and everything. He decided he didn't want to wear a costume so he just dressed in his John Cena T-shirt. I didn't get a picture of him before he walked out the door but here is a picture from last night at the grocery store.

Here are some pictures of some fun things the kids did over easter break. They get 2 weeks off from school and a lot of the malls put on shows, activities etc out for the kids.
This is Abigail and Kate working on decorating their purses.
They also had a really cool thing called Splash Ball. I think over the course of the two weeks our kids did it at least 4 times. Its just a big ball that opens with a zipper. The kids get in the ball and then they hook it up to the equivalent of a leaf blower and blow it up. The balls are in a pool of water and the kids run around like hamsters. They loved it! I think it would be a great thing for grandparents to have in their back yard!

Been awhile. This year has been super busy but we are loving it. I am trying to download some pictures of some of the activaties of the year but its not letting me arrange them in the order that I want. So, they aren't going to be in order but oh, well.

We have been trying to get a good family picture but haven't had much luck. This is the best we have come up with. We will have to get a good picture this summer when we are in Lubbock with Amy-Rose (Our favorite fotographer and great friend)

This is Abigail and Hannah with Stacie (One of our AIMers) talking to and feeding a homeless lady. Every Friday Cory and the AIMers take food to about 40 homeless in the center of Guadalajara.
Baseball is year round and keeps us pretty busy. This year they have started a girls team. Williamsburg is going to start a girls league in a few years and the coaches in Guadalajara decided to start a girls team a little early just to get the basics down. The girls practice on Wed afternoons and usually spend more time goofing around than actually playing baseball. Half of the team is missing in this picture.

This is Josiahs team at the inauguration of the season. They pick one girl to be the "Madrina" of the team. During the ceremony Hannah walked in front of the team holding a sign that said "Red Sox".
